Research Notes

  • Since Bill Belichick took over as Patriots head coach in 2000, the Patriots are 15-25 (.375 win pct) in games with at least 3 turnovers, the best win pct with at least 3 turnovers in that timeframe.

  • Over the last 10 seasons, only Michael Vick has a worst win percentage in games played in freezing temperatures than Peyton Manning.

  • Tom Brady was a different player in the 2nd half, completing more than 80 percent of his passes. And after throwing for just 81 yards in the entire 1st half, he racked up 76 passing yards on New England's first drive after halftime.

  • Knowshon Moreno had 208 rushing yards in between the tackles, the most in a game since 2007 (Jamal Lewis, 219). The Broncos' offensive line gave Moreno room to run as he gained 145 yards before contact. Only DeMarco Murray has more yards before contact in a game this season (149 vs. Rams).

  • Tom Brady was 10-of-10 with three touchdowns on passes traveling 10 or fewer yards downfield in the second half/overtime when targeting Julian Edelman and Rob Gronkowski. In the first half, Edelman and Gronkowski had a combined four targets.

  • From Elias: The 24-point blown lead matches the largest by the Broncos in a loss. They previously blew a 24-point lead in a 30-27 loss to the Raiders in 1988.The comeback from 24 points down is the largest deficit overcome to win a game in Patriots history. Their previous best was a comeback from 23 down to beat the Seahawks, 38-23 in 1984.

  • Demaryius Thomas: 1st player in Broncos history to have at least 10 TD catches in consecutive seasons
